Hyderabad: If you think you cannot live without using plastics, then Rwanda, Morocco and Kenya are certainly not the places to be who have completely banned plastic. Mr Andrew Fleming, UK deputy high commissioner to Telangana, said that it would be upright if India could replicate it. 

GHMC has been constantly asking people to avoid using plastics and use cloth bags. Responding to a tweet by Swacch Rajendra Nagar, asking people to “Say no to plastic bag”, Mr Fleming tweeted, “Replicating (plastic ban) in India will be huge but if one Indian state led the way, wouldn’t that be something? ” 

 

However he pointed that when a ban is imposed, mindful enforcement of it would be more difficult.

It may be mentioned here that the Telangana government has imposed a ban on short-life Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and chlorinated plastics in the state. This week Maharashtra government imposed a complete ban on plastic carry bags and thermocol cutlery, becoming the 18th state of the country to impose such ban.
